It's one of the things I don't get: it's 10:00 on the east/west coasts - the old people who buy this stuff should be in bed by then.

Some older folks have odd sleeping hours. Often they nap throughout the day; that means they might not be tired at 10:00 PM.

Plus, I'm sure the audience is not exclusively senior citizens.

I'm not a fan, but I respect the people who do like it and hope that when a show I like is on, those fans will be just as tolerate of me.

I never got into Hogan's Heroes either, I just don't see the humor in it. Generally speaking I'm not a fan of military sitcoms, but I do like Gomer Pyle USMC and some episodes of F Troop are fairly funny.

I'm also not really a fan of military shows but I do like "Gomer Pyle USMC" and "Major Dad".

I never cared for the show, and if I ever got a box set as a gift I'd probably give it away to Goodwill. But, no matter the show, there will be those who love it; and for them I'm glad they have access.

Now that you mention it neither am I, except for MASH. I like wacky comedy much better like Mama's Family. Can you imagine Mama in the military? LOL she'd be some WAC drill Sargeant, with her sharp mouth. And driving her superiors just as crazy as Gomer.

Yup, M*A*S*H is pretty much my only military comedy, too. I remember there was one based on "Private Benjamin" that didn't last too long; I don't believe I ever watched that one. It's a really hard balance to strike between creating laughs out of the situation and not making light of the tragedies and seriousness of the matter.

Major Dad had the advantage of a peacetime setting. Hogan's Heroes did not, and I think that is one reason many folks are cold to it. But as others have said, to each his own. If everyone were the same, it would be a very boring world.

I do not like Hogan either. I tried watching it one night out of curiosity but I just don't like it.

Have you seen Vicki Lawerence as Sgt. Alvinia T. Plout on "Laverne & Shirley?" If not, check it out. It's like Mama-light in the military. She even uses the Mama voice.

Episodes:

- The Baby Show (1983)
- Out, Out Damn Plout (1981)
- The Survival Test (1980)
- We're in the Army, Now: Part 2 (1979)
- We're in the Army, Now: Part 1 (1979)

There was no finale where the war ended or anything.
back then shows very rarely, if ever, had finales. "THE DICK VAN DYKE SHOW" and "THE FUGITIVE" had them but those were rare exceptions.

Also "I DREAM OF JEANNIE" was going to but it's a long story as to why it didn't.

I think a lot of folks just watch it to pass time. Not for entertainment. This show seriously bores me and makes me fall asleep too.

I think Hogan's Heroes is brilliant comedy. The bonus of its setting is that the "prisoners" constantly make the Nazi's look stupid. The ensemble cast does a great job.

This was on tv before "The Producers" hitted the big screen. So you could say this influenced Mel Brooks's comedy.
